TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with the annual TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and the TEDGlobal Conference in Oxford UK, TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site and the Open Translation Program. TED has also created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. We are called TEDx Dar, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxDar event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
